Meachers awarded cfsp approval
12 December 2012
Following the testing of its software and processes by HM Revenue & Customs (HMRC),Meachers Global Logistics has been awarded Customs Freight Simplified Procedures (CFSP) approval. The CFSP customs declaration system
The CFSP customs declaration system was introduced to replace period entry and period warehousing.
CFSP is an electronic process, which enables Meachers Global to clear imported goods via a simplified Entry, which is later finalised with a Supplementary Declaration. In most cases this will give the importer immediate clearance, enabling them to arrange faster deliveries.
MD of Meachers Global's International Division, Clive Broadley, said: "CFSP was created to help with the needs of the business community in the UK. It improves and simplifies Customs procedures for importers wanting to clear goods, either at port or out of warehouse.
"Under CFSP, the first Customs declaration is kept to a minimum with the remainder of the information required later in the Supplementary Declaration. This is in line with Customs' aim to decrease the amount of paperwork previously required and nine times out of 10 immediate clearance will be granted."
